Caroga Arts Collective presents
June 11-18, 2017
The first Inter-Arts Symposium featured ten resident artists from across the country who gathered in Caroga to explore there art form along with creating connections and collaborations with artists of all genres including visual art, music, dance, poetry etc.
The ten artists gave two “showcase” performances at the end of the week and performed an school outreach concert at Wheelerville School during the middle of the week. Inspired by our spirited discussions and experiential collaboration, the artists were instructed to lead one discussion while also being exposed to various guest speakers and presentations throughout the week.
These guest speakers included Geri Lipschultz (Hunter College, poetry), Dustin Swanger (FMCC, President), Wally Hart (Nigra Center, Executive Director), Stephen Paparo (Feldenkrais, UMass-Amherst), Casey Loomis (Dance, NYC), Nicolina Dante (Dance, NYC), Kathryn Phillips-Spira and Richard Nilsen (author and journalists), James Long (Adirondack Expert and Inventor), and Sandra Lee (High Peak Acupuncture.) The drawings are results from a fifteen-minute group improvisation session completed the final day of the Symposium.

Due to a medical emergency, the Caroga Arts National Summer Cello Institute and Feldenkrais for Performers Workshop was postponed to 2018. In the meantime, we worked to develop a week-long program at the Caroga Arts Collective during the originally scheduled first week of the Feldenkrais workshop. This program is known as the Inter-Arts Symposium.
This program will run from June 11-18 and feature a variety of activities including interdisciplinary arts presentations along with various performances and teaching opportunities.
Consisting of up to 30 resident artists, each person attending will prepare one discussion or presentation on a topic of their choice for a 45 minute block as part of our collaborative process. We hope to turn this situation into a fantastic opportunity to practice, perform, experiment and collaborate while enjoying an additional week upstate.
